I'm sure you'll enjoy this one, it's what got me into the Grateful Dead: http://www.archive.org/audio/etree-details-db.php?id=14856

Gotta say, I really don't buy the listed chain of events, but the current (hopefully not the final) result is certainly better than the first.

Thanks! This show is amazing.

Not to diminish the well-reasoned approach to what has happened to the SBD recordings, but as someone who has done a fair share of sampling 65-95 on these, I'm not sure there is a pressing need to possess them all hardcopy.

Just my opinion, and I liked the previous comment about "rotating SBD" availability. Hell, the DEAD haven't had this much press in awhile! What's the old saying about any publicity being good publicity? ;') LOL

Amen to that...you'de never know 8/6/71 was an aud! Anyone who doesn't have this show go grab it immediately!

While not a perfect resolution, this is perhaps better than I was expecting, especially within such a short time frame.

Thanks to Brewster and everone else at LMA for sticking with us through this, and for doing such a great job. To paraphrase Bill Graham, "There's not the best at what they do, they're the only ones who do what they do."

Seriously, though, it would be great if we could have all the reviews back, including those for shows that went "dark" a while ago (8/27/72, 9/21/72, etc.).

OK, the aud downloads are more or less back as zips and lossless, etc.
The 1971-08-06 show does have good sound, thanks.

And as other threads mention, definitely the 1969-05-03. Vocals are low but the instruments are right in your face.

& another high quality aud from the Workingman's period is 1970-09-20

It was an audience tape that first turned me onto the GD- nothing unusual about that for many of us.

That tape was really primitive, yet still caught my ear - on a mono Craig cassette deck sitting on the grass in back of our high school, the taper was playing a previous night's Saint Stephen - I stopped and listened.

Thanks to that crude audience tape, I went to the next scheduled GD show, my first rock concert ever, April 1970, with Miles Davis supporting the Grateful Dead.

So, the week before Nov. 22 I spent a long day trying to find the "best" or at least my favorite available Saint Stephen off the Archive...

and came up with some beautiful versions.

"All he lost, he shall regain"

Let's hope so.
